What if you could help kids better understand the Holy Spirit and how it works in the lives of those who trust in Jesus? What if you could help them see how the Spirit “powers up” their lives with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, AND self-control? And what if you could do ALL that in a way that’s engaging and practical?

Power Up is a nine-week devotional that takes kids on a journey toward understanding the work of the Holy Spirit and how it helps us live out our faith in real time, every day. Inside kids will find …

  • Nine weeks of devotions, each week focused on a different “power up,” or attribute of the fruit of the Spirit, that God wants to grow in us
  • Five devotions per week to help kids work out those faith muscles as they build the habit of spending regular time with God
  • a “Power Up Challenge” for each week with a hands-on activity to help them apply the week’s key principle

Kid-friendly language, theming, and lots of engaging activities make this devotional a surefire help toward understanding the Holy Spirit and its role in the life of a believer.

You know it’s impossible for kids to be loving and kind and gentle and patient in their own strength. That’s where the Holy Spirit comes in, to grow—or power up—those things in us. Power Up will show them how.

Power Up is part of the 252 Kids Devotional Series, interactive devotional books for elementary-age children designed to help kids grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship. A great choice for new or growing Christians, baptism gifts, small groups, take-home gifts from VBS, and for parents who want to disciple their children.
